The symbolic meaning of daisy is purity, joy and innocence. And all those apply to this Daisy! A seven-year-old Labrador Retriever mix, Daisy was found as a stray. She was taken to the Colleton County Animal Control shelter in South Carolina on September 18th. Poor Daisy was so scared at the shelter that she just sat in her kennel shaking. Unfortunately, Daisy tested heartworm positive. The combination of being a senior and heartworm positive didn’t provide her with much of a chance of getting out of this rural shelter alive.
On October 4th, the Animal Aid Foundation in Georgia requested RADAR’s assistance for Daisy. We agreed to help with her heartworm treatment costs, which allowed the Animal Aid Foundation to commit to take Daisy! On October 8th and 9th, Daisy received her heartworm treatment. To provide Daisy with a better opportunity to get adopted more quickly, she was transferred to Dog Orphans in Massachusetts.
We were told this about Daisy: “She’s doing amazing! She is happy and playful, but a little camera shy. She has really come out of her shell since her terrible days at the shelter. She plays well with the other dogs and is always wagging her tail!” To view more photos of Daisy, click here.
RADAR paid $250 towards the heartworm treatment costs for Daisy.
